    We know the price - we know the availability dates - we know it comes in multiple colours - we know the hardware specs ... What else is there to say during the event in a couple of days?

    I can't imagine that they would reveal all of this great news prior to the official release, without holding a few things back - I'm genuinely just wondering what they might be. I'm guessing BlackBerry Blend will be one, but can't think of anything else.

    Ideas?

    Blend, the Classic, the phone for the medical fields, and maybe a nice little surprise should be what's featured.

    More unknown or unreported capabilities of the device and a boat load of accessories associated with helping improve the BlackBerry Passport’s productivity.

    We don't really know where it will be available and the dates for those places,.. particularly for U.S. Carriers.

    Yes I have no idea when I can expect to get the Passport. Hoping for carrier support announcements to come in after the event.

    U.S. Carrier support and availability is definitely what I'm looking to hear about. As soon as AT&T and Verizon get this, we'll have 3 Passports in our family to start.

    There won't be any! People have had the phone for a long time now. If there were any "secret" features they would have written about it in the CB forums.

    I think what most (of the few that are still following BlackBerry) are really looking for is BlackBerry's presentation and rollout execution. It's more about the intangibles than the actual hardware in this case.

    Not completely out of the question that we'll hear more about the Classic and Z20 as well.

    We know next to nothing about accessories for the Passport as of now, so it's fair to assume we'll get more info on that too.

    Crackberry isnt putting any passport stuff on their website because they might get in trouble before the launch

    Maybe a suite of business apps that will come with the Passport

    A cool and hip holster for the phone. Given its size, that's no small feat!

    Blend is enough to keep everyone interested. The surprise will be that it will also be available as an app for android tabs and ipads.

    As far as using Blend on other OS's I would think that it would be just locked down to BBM functions. No way should they give away the other great features that we think Blend is going to offer. Make them pay for that. ie Calendar, mail, etc.


    Back on topic of my prediction. BES 12 and enhanced features for all OS's. Maybe a little background on what BlackBerry is and what it means beyond phones that everyone thinks drives BlackBerry and its portfolio. Again I think they need to steal the BASF tagline.

    Well, if today's report on BNN is any indication, a few surprises are in store for the launch. The analyst speaking during the report very confidently stated that BlackBerry is slated to reveal several surprises during the Passport launch events on the 24th.

    Yeah, but... what may be a surprise to most bystanders,.. is most likely been bouncing around CB for months. Hopefully we (here at CB) aren't setting ourselves up for a *relative* let down.

    I really hope there are some surprises. BlackBerry launch events were always a bit - lets just say plain.
    What I want to see is some understatement on the stage while having lots of stuff and surprises to show (those - hopefully make the crowd cheer).
    I know marketing will bite me for this statement but I'd prefer that instead of "It's that simple, awesome, astonishing, awesome, awesome,..."-voodoo.

    I'm just getting my hopes up for actual dates that I can walk into AT&T and grab the phone. Anything else is just icing on the cake.
